In 2016, our founder, Vanessa Palmer set off to film a Mindful TV Series in Mexico, called PRANA WARRIORS.
Part of the shows mission was to raise money and give back to a small orphanage in Cozumel called, CIUDAD DE ANGELES.
The cast and crew raised over $5000 for furniture for one of their new homes. The crew and cast spent a day while filming with the kids, setting up their new home and teaching yoga and meditation to these amazing little souls.
Once Prana Warriors airs, the show will continue to raise money for these children's futures.
December 2017, Curating Mindfulness hosted its first large scale meditation and mindfulness experience at Zhou B. Art Center in Bridgeport, Chicago.
Hundreds of people came out on a Sunday morning to meditate as one and raise money and awareness for the launch of the mindful movement and Lawrence Hall in Chicago.
Lawrence Hall was founded in 1865 to meet the needs of the thousands of orphaned children of the Civil War.
In 2015 they celebrated 150 years of serving Chicago; they redefined their mission and vision to extend support further than just youth. They opened up two new sites for their Foster Care programs located in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood and their Lawrence Hall’s Project Work, multiple programs focusing on workforce development, in the South Shore community.
April 2018, Curating Mindfulness hosted its Happiness Experience at Fort Knox/ 2112 in Chicago.
The Happiness Experience drew a mindful crowd on a Friday evening to meditate as one and raise money and awareness for Camp Green Heart.
Since 1985, Greenheart International has been a catalyst for global transformation through the facilitation of cultural exchange programs, eco-fair trade purchasing, personal development opportunities, volunteer service initiatives, and environmental advocacy projects. Their mission of connecting people and planet to create global leaders drives all that they do in each of their branches: Greenheart Travel, Greenheart Shop, Greenheart Transforms, and Greenheart Exchange. Greenheart International is endorsed by the City of Chicago for the promotion of international education, environmental awareness, and citizen diplomacy.
Curating Mindfulness not only partners with registered charities, but people among our community in need.
When Curating Mindfulness hosted its Love Experience, February 2018, they found the perfect beneficiary for the mindful and meditation experience all about Love.
They discovered little MAXINE THE HEART WARRIOR; a 2-year old little girl in Chicago on Go Fund Me. Her family were raising money for Maxine's heart surgeries and the ongoing support and love they needed to keep moving forward. Maxine has Transposition of the Great Arteries, Pulmonary Stenosis, and a Ventricular Septal Defect.
Curating Mindfulness raised over $500 that night through donations and ticket sales to donate back to her Go Fund Me Page.
